CAP - Incorporating Social Science Into Your Criminal Defense Practice

Time: October 19, 2023 - 1pm
Location: Zoom

From the science of eyewitness memory to studies on race and how jurors think, social science draws on a wide range of disciplines – including psychology, public health, statistics, communication studies, and economics – to explain how and why people, groups, and societies do the things that they do. Social science studies and statistics are underutilized tools that allow defenders to communicate more effectively with judges and juries, better understand the implicit biases that impact the court system and support the substantive legal arguments they raise on behalf of clients.  In this training, you will hear from Professor Eve Brensike Primus about new and creative ways you find and can incorporate social science into your defense arguments.
